  5. 5. Wear Team Retrospective – March 2015 HAPPINESS OVER STRESS While we value the structure provided by timelines and deliverables, we value the multiplicative effect of addressing human needs more. Individual happiness, clarity, and sense of meaning creates an inherent drive. A team of driven people works at a higher velocity and is more able to adjust to changing deadlines and deliverables. Something done right is better than something done one time or to a budget. Without a team focus on emotions, stress and friction cannot be transformed into happiness and positive forward momentum.
  6. 6. FLEXIBILITY OVER STRUCTURE While we value the dependability of rules, we value the instinct to continuously and dramatically change our process more. Process is only a means to an end and needs to change as the team and the project evolves. Our process is continuously validated against common sense and experience. Wear Team Retrospective – March 2015
  7. 7. Wear Team Retrospective – March 2015 US OVER ME While we value the uniqueness of individuals, we value working as a team with a common purpose more. A good idea starts with one person but only the team can bring meaning to it. We believe that being together, communicating directly, and providing constant feedback is the best way to build strong teams and good things. Involving other people in your work also creates team ownership of the output.
  8. 8. Wear Team Retrospective – March 2015 SILLY OVER SERIOUS We value seriousness but we’ve learnt that working and continuously looking for silliness is not a mutually exclusive thing. This team believes in the power of silly and whimsical situations. We look for silly daily: sometimes it is even more fun to celebrate the small daily doses of silly rather than a big delivery. At the end, you can only become silly when taking it seriously.
  9. 9. Wear Team Retrospective – March 2015 COLLABORATION OVER HIERARCHY While we value the simplicity and clarity of group hierarchy, we value team trust more. We are aware that hierarchy could be used detrimentally as a cheap filler for trust. However, we believe in the hierarchy that highlights our different levels of expertise. We use hierarchy to empower with trust other team members. It takes time to build but today trust is the blood that runs within the veins and diligence of this team’s actions.
  10. 10. We value seriousness but we’ve learnt that working and continuously looking for silliness is not a mutually exclusive thing. This team believes in the power of silly and whimsical situations. We look for silly daily: sometimes it is even more fun to celebrate the small daily doses of silly rather than a big delivery. At the end, you can only become silly when taking it seriously. Wear Team Retrospective – March 2015 COURAGE OVER COMFORT While we value a laid back environment, we value the courage to be honest with each other more. This team values comfort only when it doesn’t prevent us to speak our minds honestly. All the actions individuals or teams take within this team are always done with good intentions. Hence, discrepancies to the consequences of these actions are communicated with nothing else but honesty. Other than that will be disrespectful to the individual and to the whole team.
  11. 11. We always aim for the highest quality output but if when doing so we miss the bigger picture, we will consider it a failing. Keeping attention to detail while thinking two steps ahead into thinking “what if?” and “what’s Next” is how we keep perspective. Wear Team Retrospective – March 2015 PRINCIPLES OVER OUTPUT
